Think of questions you'd ask if they asked you to invest your life savings in the business. Why that business, competitive advantage, leadership goals/quals/style, financials, time to liquidity event.

Honestly they try so hard to sell you. Be armed with a ton of questions and you won’t have to answer anything about yourself. Ask them about their vision, five years plan, how it got started, why they don’t do xyz, etc

Yep! These are all questions I asked c-suite at the tech startup I will be joining.

I interviewed someone and they were clearly sexist. All the other interviewers - all men - liked him a lot. I’m saying no to him and trying to articulate why. Please help? What do I say? The role he would come in for would need to support me and my team- among others. I don’t want to be the difficult person here, but he would clearly not be a good fit and I get the feeling he would not be a good partner to me.
